There’s a metaphor for life in here, but I’m not going to make it THAT obvious

Posted on 6 May 2013


One of the things I find most interesting about travel is discovering what’s changed since you left. This weekend I was gone exactly sixty hours, but weather-wise it could have been months. On Friday at 9 am it was  five degrees- there had been snow not long before, and winter coats weren’t out of the question. By Sunday at 9 pm it was shorts and sandals weather, green grass everywhere, with the temperature coming down from the twenties earlier in the day.

I’ve noticed that the amount of time you are gone makes very little difference in what’s actually changed. I’ve been gone for weeks and returned to a city that’s exactly the same as I left: weather, buildings, people, news. Other times there’s a dramatic difference in a matter of hours.
